Reginald "Reggie" Fils-Aime May 2004 E3 speech and DS announcement was included in the video, which was the major announcement.
The interview asks questions on the DS, the European gap in release dates, and European developers and Nintendo. Then the new "home system" which would create a "gaming revolution" (the "Revolution" console which would later become the Nintendo Wii) they are developing, and keeping quiet about it. He then answers a question on the next generation "battle", and then on a level playing field for the generation. He answers a question on the PSP, and answers questions on how Hiroshi Yamauchi and Shigeru Miyamoto is doing and what they are doing. Lastly there are questions on Nintendo's share price and financial situation at the time.
